healthcare and education are Not smaller issues my point is people in alberta might want something different than someone in PEI or something. by keeping healthcare and education etc. on a smaller more community type basis the quality of it can improve, but by generalizing it(like we do now very socialistic) we are stuck with a set(not better just set) of rules that, at best, will only make half the people in the country happy.
why do you think everyone in canada is stupid and cant see whats going on and only care about american idol, getting drunk, and what name brand overpriced chinese plastic crap they can buy to make themsleves feel important.
take education for example, our education is absolute garbage, through elemtary kids DO NOT learn anything that will help them in life, dont teach how to start a business, dont teach much history,dont teach the law(very important), dont talk about polotics, barely learn math science or english, dont even talk about our charterof rights and freedoms, instead kids are given the most generalized book copying information, while telling them that unless they do good, be completely uniques as long as in the box(conform)they will NEVer succeed.
so kids get out of school know nothing about history(besides what hollywood movies portray as history) know nothing about their rights in canada, know nothing about the law(cops barely know the actual law)cant do math without a calculator, dont know what real defintions of words are, and couldnt start a life or take care of themsleves WITHOUT the governments help. this is what i mean these "rules" are made by people in ottowa not alberta. keep the kids stupid uninformed they can either go in debt and go to more school, or be a minimum wage slave. this is what happens when a small group of people make all the rules for us.
kids come out of school thinking that they are just as equal as every kid they have ever known, this whole idea takes the uniqueness, compotition and ambition away from people who could literaly be anything but who are told can only be anything if they conform and go into debt.
lets say alberta made our own rules it wouldnt be unfair that we had a better education system then oother provinces it would create compatition market that would open up all sorts of enw ideas instead every school in canada teaches the same thing, so no one really cares about inproving themselves its just easier to JUST make it.
anyway i hate the fact you say "ATLEAST OUR VOTE COUNTS' but really a vote for a person every 5 years and the only thing else we can do is just HOPE they do good is insane, its insane to keep doing the same thing over and over again. and yes the leaders are forced on us because its the same people or same type of people over and over agian.
your given 2 choices a knife or a gun which way do you want to die, do you sit there and say "wow i sure am glad that i have my vote over these 2 things?"
i want a choice and its me i want to make choices for my life and my families , not people i have never met. making our own choices doesnt mean we want less cooperation with canada what it means is that we want less government control over our lives, and a chance to live our lives without worrying what changes and laws will screw us over next time. but all i see is a socialistic society hidden behind the WORD 'democracy" and thats it.i feel the government has NO right to make choices for me without my consent.
cooperation does NOT mean control. canada was ok way before this corporate control was there and we had way more rights, way smarter people, and hell of a lot more jobs. aswell as people could survive without the governments help. but not anymore which to me is called slavery.
